Jessica remembers first and foremost that clients are people and whether she is representing an individual or a Fortune 500 company, she knows that being named in a lawsuit is a personal experience. She walks her clients through a process that is not normal or pleasant, telling them to forget about the lawsuit 90% of the time and she will let them know when the other 10% occurs. Her ability to put clients at ease and her unwavering confidence in having the right answer, make her an attorney clients can trust.
As a member of both the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group and Toxic Tort & Environmental Practice Group, Jessica defends clients in matters relating to personal injury liability and insurance defense.
